My July Purchases

First up were some purchases via BHS:
Wallis Striped Knitted Jumper Dress, £25 £10
This striped knitted dress/tunic will be perfect once autumn and winter arrive. I'll probably wear it with leggings and knee-high boots.
Wallis Animal & Rose Print Knitted Button Back Top, £19.50 £9.50
This gorgeous knitted top features buttons down the back and is really soft. I wish the length was a little longer. You can see this in my latest OOTD.
BHS Grey Rose Metal Jewellery Hanging Rack, £12 £6
This jewellery storage was a perfect addition to our bedroom make-over. I love the rustic grey metal and rose detail.

Next up was an online order from Forever 21 with free P&P (on orders over £50):
Abstract Brushstroke Pleated Dress, £18 (went on sale next day!)
Isn't it just my luck that this dress went on sale the very next day, at just £12.60?! Never mind - I'm glad I got it when I did, as it quickly went out of stock! I adore the monochrome print, the tassel belt, and the loose, casual fit!
V-Neck Burnout Tee,  £9 £6.30
I've been after a basic v-neck top for a while, and I think this grey one will be great with jeans and a long necklace for a laid-back look.
Smocked Paisley Skirt, £15 £9.99
In my (so far, fruitless) attempt at embracing skirts, I bought a skirt. This hot pink and purple combo, with a pretty paisley print. And silky, floaty material.
Retro Geo Shorts, £9.75 £4.99
I very rarely wear shorts, either, but these blue geo print ones really caught my eye. I think they'd be great with tights in the cooler months. I like that they have pockets, too!
Stretch-Knit Tank Top, £3
This basic tank top will be used as a layering piece. Not bad for £3!
Two-Tone Faux Stone Necklace, £4.50
This long necklace will be great for sprucing up a simple outfit! I've been wearing it loads since I got it.
Faux Stone Arrowhead Necklace, £4.50
I love the deep blue colour of the stone; this piece will add interest to laid-back looks.
In-store at TK Maxx, I picked up this Organic Surge Gardeners Hand Cream, RRP £7.99 £3.99/75ml, some Himalayan pink salt, £2.49/500g, and another wash mitt, RRP £4 £2.99

When the up to 60% off Naturisimo sale email popped into my inbox, how was I ever going to resist a quick peep at what was on offer?
So, that quick peep turned into a completely un-needed, frivolous purchase of Acorelle's Vanilla Blossom Eau De Parfum, £30 £15 £13.50/50ml. This was a gamble as I hadn't sampled this scent before - this was my first natural perfume purchase! I adore vanilla, so I was sure I'd love this; and it smells absolutely beautiful! On top of the 50% off price tag, I also bagged a 10% off code, yay!

I was in desperate need of new flats, as my current ones were falling apart and I needed some go-with-everything options, so I placed a little order on Dorothy Perkins when they had a sale.
Red Round Toe Pumps, £12 £7
These simple red flats will look great with skinny jeans and will brighten up a neutral outfit.
Denim Stripe Round Toe Pumps, £15 £12
These striped denim-style flats will compliment lots of outfits, as they have a pretty neutral colourway.

And I also treated myself to a new pair of leopard print flats from Long Tall Sally.
Daisy Ballerina in Chocolate, £30 £25.50
LTS's shoes are great quality and I had wanted to replace my old leopard flats for ages. I managed to bag 15% off these beauties, plus free delivery.

What did you purchase in July?


  1. Oh wow you got some amazing things and at bargain prices! The summer sale this year seems to have been really good. I’ve been buying a few things too so it was nice to share ideas. I never think to try forever 21 but I adore those geometric shorts they are so cool!! I also love those animal print shoes, perfect for A/W :-) xx

    1. Thank you, Helen! Sales are so hit and miss, so I was glad to pick up some great items! You should definitely try Forever 21 - they are so affordable and have lots of options. I particularly love their jewellery. I'm in love with the leopard flats! :) xxx

  2. Oh, those leopard print flats. I also love the stripes!

    1. The striped ones have been getting lots of wear and the leopard print ones are perfect for evenings. xxx
